All skill levels welcome, some basic throwing experience helpful.
In this workshop, Adam will demonstrate his methods for carving intricate pattern on a variety of wheel-thrown porcelain forms. He will also demonstrate traditional Korean Onggi coil and paddle pottery techniques. From ancient Korean techniques, to innovative solutions for timeless problems, participants will develop a new perspective on creating and decorating functional pottery. Students will sharpen their throwing techniques and learn new skills for mapping out and carving geometric patterns in clay. Discussions about aesthetics, materials, ceramic history, studio practice, and promotion and marketing strategies for the studio potter are designed to encourage individual discovery, growth, and development of fresh ideas. Participants will gain the skills and confidence to create and decorate work in their own voice. Dry work will be bisqued.
